Over the past school year there has been an explosion in the amount of vaping on school grounds and buildings. We have seen that this trend has fully entered the public consciousness via numerous stories in mainstream and popular publications. As students, teens and young adults are utilizing this product, they are being exposed to toxic chemicals that are as bad or even worse than tobacco cigarettes.
FDA has issued over 40 letters for violations
for selling the devices to minors and demanded the manufacturer turn over documents relating to its toxicity and the marketing of its product to young people, despite its claims to the contrary.
a recent study
, in 2017, 19 percent of 12th graders, 16 percent of 10th-graders and 8 percent of 8th graders reported vaping nicotine in the past year and at least 5 potentially harmful toxicants are found in the body of human adolescents who use electronic cigarettes according to a study by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Many states have banned vaping and e-cigarettes on public and school grounds, but laws can only do so much – Fly Sense’s latest technology can assist school districts in more easily detecting student vaping and Juuling – the latest e-cigarette craze – which is rapidly spreading among students. The crisis has reached epidemic proportions – now is the time to act ahead of the new school year’s fall term when vaping will again be on the rise.
